Thank you to our friends at Waterstone’s in Livingston who exchaged over 70 of our Book Day tokens for new books to use in Pinewood. These will be used in Language, the school library and for our new homework bags. Well done to Group 8 who collected the books today.
Sam in group 2 has written a super story this week:
The primary pupil council met this morning and were ready and raring to go after the holidays! We all have new job roles to take on:
Callum was our leader
Cameron was in charge of pouring the water
Mark kept the meeting running on time as the time keeper
Kai and Liam kept notes of our ideas from the meeting
Tyler and Harry were in charge of tidying up
Ben and Graeme were our messengers.
We found out what the plan for this term was and we wrote down ideas for how to make some money to buy new playground toys!
Pinewood School Choir entertained visitors to Edinburgh Airport this week. They sang Christmas songs for almost two hours and raised over £500 for charity in the process, including a £250 donation from the Airport. The Charity Committee in school will now decide where the money goes. They did a wonderful job, well done to all.
We enjoyed making our abstract door pictures. We drew a door shape with lines to make it look like a corridor. You can see our finished pictures on display in school.
We cannot wait for the Christmas Fayre. We are excited and happy because we have made lots of stuff to sell. This includes Candy Canes, Rudolphs, Santa Gift Boxes, Fudge, Coconut Ice and Aromatherapy Creams. Please come to our stall.
Group 8 had a great time canoeing on the Union Canal. We have to collect and organise all our equipment. We all help each other to put the canoes in the water. We have to work together to paddle the canoes. We all had lots of fun.
We are learning choreography in dance. We are working in pairs and then we practice it. At the end we perform our dances for our friends.
